Kelly Brenner captured this wonderfully poetic image of an urban pollinator framed against the hustle bustle of the city.
Rather than going against the flow, bees in the city make sense. Studies suggest that bees often thrive in urban areas, which host a greater variety of plants than suburban yards or agricultural tracts. While pollinators — including bats, birds, bees, moths and butterflies — face many threats, urban beekeeping is growing rapidly. City dwellers (humans) can also help bees and other wildlife and conserve biodiversity by supporting wildlife gardens.
